Not So Far
Writing from Left to Right: My Journey from Liberal to Conservative
by Michael Novak
Random House, 2013
(316 pages, $24.00, hardcover)
reviewed by John C. Chalberg
For better than half a century Michael Novak has appeared to be a man on the move. Born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, he has studied and taught on both American coasts and abroad. Once a Kennedy Democrat, he wound up a Reaganite, if not exactly a Reagan Republican. And once taken for a man of the religious left, Catholic variety, he eventually came to be regarded as a man on the religious right.
